"In the backyard of the [Royal Academy of Fine Arts] school was this little building, on the verge of collapsing. You would have to very carefully go over the stairs, because if you took one mis-step, you could literally push your feet through them. It was almost dangerous. So I think that the whole thing melted well together. It was the switch from the 80s to 90s, the reaction on excess with minimalism and deconstruction, the first appearance of grunge. So that feeling of romanticism, together with the history, the building and the run down corridors with the statues, it really did make a big impact on how you formed your visual language. I really think there was something quite dark and magical about it, matching perfectly the zeitgeist of the period."

“A line hangs between the back and the proscenium where two dresses hang from a moving metallic structure, their long sleeves sewn together. Two raw dresses, see-through, inlaid with interlaced artificial hair which recalls vegetal fibres. Fans start one after the other while the mobile goes slowly along the line. The dresses begint to have a floating movement, almost imperceptible, then move lightly, until they lift up and turn round on themselves. Between light and shadow –subtly organised by Cathy Olive elegance, delicacy, a device with an hypnotic effect.”
